Resumen

AVILES-SALAS, Alejandro; QUINTERO-CUADRA, Yolanda  y  CORNEJO-JUAREZ, Patricia. Extrapulmonary coccidioidomycosis: Case report and review. Rev. chil. infectol. [online]. 2007, vol.24, n.5, pp.398-401. ISSN 0716-1018.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-10182007000500009.

Coccidioidomycosis is a deep mycotic infection endemic in the Southwestern part of the United States and Mexico and certain areas of Central and South America. The causative agents are fungi of the genus Coccidioides. Primary infection usually involves the lungs, and dissemination occurs in less than 1% of cases. While the extrapulmonary disease usually involves the skin, central nervous system, bones or joints, it can involve any tissue or organ. We present a case of extrapulmonary coccidioidomycosis in a 20-year-old male, in whom the diagnosis was made by a lymph node biopsy. His past history was not significant and the biopsy was performed because the physical findings were suggestive of lymphoma

Palabras clave : Coccidioidomycosis; Coccidioides immitis; lymph node.
